Lectures on vector bundlesby Joseph Le Potier
Synopses & Reviews
This work consists of two sections on the moduli spaces of vector bundles. The first part tackles the classification of vector bundles on algebraic curves. The author also discusses the construction and elementary properties of the moduli spaces of stable bundles. In particular Le Potier constructs HilbertSHGrothendieck schemes of vector bundles, and treats Mumford's geometric invariant theory. The second part centers on the structure of the moduli space of semistable sheaves on the projective plane. The author sketches existence conditions for sheaves of given rank, and Chern class and construction ideas in the general context of projective algebraic surfaces. Professor Le Potier provides a treatment of vector bundles that will be welcomed by experienced algebraic geometers and novices alike.
This work consists of two courses on the moduli spaces of vector bundles. The first is introductory, and assumes very little background; the second is more advanced and takes the reader into current areas of research. This a treatment of vector bundles that will be welcomed by experienced algebraic geometers and novices alike.
